I am restoring an early 2-6-0 which had a bad fall but I think I am missing some parts. The problem seems to be in the transfer of the power from the wheels to the motor. The loco was second hand when I got it and not running. Can someone direct me to a site that can tell me the electrical path for the power or alternatively another method.

Did you have a look at this diagram?

Yes I have had a check of the problem and it looks like some brass shim sections are missing. The diagram does not show the electrical path so I have ordered some shim from a supplier and will cut it to suit.
Thanks for your quick response

It's an DC locomotive so the electrical path shouldn't be a mayor problem.
One side + and one side -.
usually right side +.
If not so the loco will run backwards in comparison with the other loco's.
Simple.

Ton,
      I realise this but what I am looking for is the shape of the brass shim wipers used on the original as it appears to be different on my later variant. The only other solution would be to solder some jumper wire in.

have a look at the motor picture.
The shim whiper on the other side is the same but mirrored.
I would use thin wires.
